and protect the citizens. that is used as the basis for this military action. the arab league calling for a no-fly zone was the tipping point for the current administration to say, that is what we need to move forward. i would argue that it could act in its own best self interest, to get rid of somebody they cannot stand. part of the political response may be confusion over where we stand. are we making the mental leap from saying that we are protecting citizens to now we are advancing with the rebels as they push past where they were when we stepped in? that is an entirely different issue. perhaps the president will address that this evening. then there is concern over this limited approach. at the end of the day, it is relatively ineffective. i thi we will see it. now that the fight may go to the urban centers, air power is relatively useless. we are working our way towards a stalemate if we are not putting people on the ground. there is a lot o criticism coming from the democrats as well as the republicans. i think it is more of a failure to understand what it is we are doing in how we tend

is one of the first cities in the mississippi state to use asphalt recycling. we are able to use and get more done with less. and i think that's the type of things cities have to look at in this day and age. we have been able to allow and show our industries and businesses, hey, we're investing in the infrastructure base, in the things that are going to continue to see our communities grow, and we're not just doing it alone. we're partnering and putting together packages of how these things will help to progress our communities as opposed to saying well, we're just going to lay one neighborhood street here. no. this is a part of a larger group. i think that when we do that, cities then, i know for our area, in the mississippi delta, we are not only going back and correcting problems that should have been done years ago, we're properly planning and forecasting into the future, the direction that we need to go. and we have a good and solid infrastructure base. we can then have a good and solid economic developmental base, a good, solid job base to attract jobs into the area. from there we

, we need to stop using the lowest hanging fruit that exists already as islamic groups in washington, not that they're all islamist, but many of them are. but the ones that are not typically are much less funded, much less endorsed or supported by media, government, et cetera. we need to start creing platforms like this for america to see we're diverse population, that we're not all represented by the victim mongering groups and other groups that many of us take our responsibility as americans seriously. so we need to create a kitchen cabinet, if you will, of strategy, that homeland security is not just a crime problem, what is what you've been hearing, it is a crime poblem and we need to work on the ground. that's important, but homeland security is much more than that. as prime minister cameron said, we not only have to get rid of the violence, but the pooln which the violent radical swim. and we need to drain that. that's going to need a generational posture that we build institutions based on liberty, within the musl community, so we can build forward platforms for forums for deb

of education. each time you've told us about the work the obama administration is doing to beca while others there is no excuse for letting this continue in a country as great as ours. it's time we decide as a nation we can no longer afford to stay average. we can't afford to lose a generation of children because our best intentions don't work as well as they should have. we need to change in our federal education policy is a mystery to most people. we have to update the law of student and national needs through college and career ready standards, modernize teaching and the learning work force and recognize that teachers and leaders are professionals they are. we need to reevaluate the federal role in education. as we discussed last week we need to maintain accountability but most provide state and local districts more flexibility in how they appropriately address those needs and achieve those outcomes. i know we can get this right. our students can't afford to wait longer and i look forward to hearing you and thank you for taking the time to brief the committee. >> i thank the gentleman. pu

. i do not think it will be in all, but definitely some. host: thank you for joining us. that is all for "washington journal" today. we're back at 7:00 a.m. eastern time tomorrow morning. we will go now to the center for american progress action fund. the speaker there will be representative henry waxman. host [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2011] >> we have live pictures this morning. bill banning the epa's authority to regulate greenhouse gases, a tough democrat is congressman henry waxman. he is speaking out against the epa's authority to regulate green house gas. we will hear from them shortly. he is expected to talk about our dependence on oil. this is live coverage on c-span. we expect congressman waxman shortly. >> good morning, everyone. welcome. i'm john podesta. i am pleased you could join us for us this morning's discussion with congressman henry waxman. we all know he has his hands full of defending against a barrage of attacks on clean energy and public health programs. it is is special thanks to
rights but i believe we are raing awareness of islamism, political ideology, and how that is being used in this country. i am regularly astonished and outraged, outraged by this administration's continued failure to single out who our enemy is. mr. bledsoe said in his testimony that there is a big elephant in the room but our society continues not to see it and you say that this wrong is caused by political correctness and even political fear. i've got a slide on the board and i know it's going to be hard to read but if you'll look at the 9/11 commission and the number of times enemy jihad muslim brotherhood, al qae, hezbollah, hamas are mentioned. then if you look at the fbi counterterrorism lexicon and the national intelligence strategy you see zeros beside the fact that they don't mention enemy jihad, muslim brotherhood, a qaeda. it's an astonishing contrast. but what i came here today to comment on and delve into is a completely different line of thought. it is this. an issue that is of particular concern to me and my constituents and that is the threat of shaharya law to the united
, not to us. you can make all sorts of jobs with infrastructure and energy facilities. there is a reason there has not been a nuclear plant built in the united states in 30 years. wall street does not want to ensure them -- insure them. they think it is risky. look at what is going on in japan right now for some of the questions. i think we would get a lot further a lot faster by moving away from our hopeless addiction to petroleum, that we deal with alternative energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal, of which are american sources where there are a lot of jobs to be created. and it is not going to be something that puts us at risk. we will continue to develop our petroleum, but the notion that we train it dry and charge royalties that are lower than almost anyone else in the world, and most of the states are giving this oil away -- i think we need every set on that. the petroleum that will be precious. be off to conserve it. we ought to deal with conservative -- alternatives and be more effective with the infrastructure which means we're not so heavily depended. it is insane to burn
all of us parents step up at home -- and instill in our kids the self-confidence, but also self-discipline, and a work ethic that -- a work ethic that's at the heart of success in school and in life. school is not supposed to be easy. nothing worthwhile is easy. nothing worthwhile is easy. i mean, the football players understand that. i know training to be state champs can't be easy. but why is it sometimes we think -- we expect people to be working out hard on the football field, and then suddenly everybody is surprised when you've got to work out hard in the math lab. same principle applies. you've got to work hard to achieve your goals. so outstanding teachers and principals, a common mission, a culture of high expectations - that's what it takes to turn a school around. that's what accounts for progress here at miami central. and that's why we are going to support you with what we call school improvement grants. you're one of nearly a thousand schools across america that we're helping turn around by spurring reform from the bottom up. the bottom up. and the approach that we'
in the u.s. but we will have to think about how do we produce electricity more efficiently? in addition to producing, we have to think about making sure we are not wasting energy. i do not know how we're doing on the georgetown campus, mr. president, but every institution and household has to start thinking about how are we reducing the amount of energy we're using and doing it in more efficient ways. our homes and businesses consume 40% of the energy we use and it costs billions of dollars in energy. manufacturers that require large amounts of energy to make their products, their challenge by rising energy costs and so you cannot separate the issue of all dependents from the issue of how we're producing more energy generally. that is why we propose new programs to help americans upgrade their homes and businesses and plans with new energy-efficient building materials, new lighting, new windows, new heating and cooling systems. investments that will save consumers and business owners tens of billions of dollars a year and free money for money and investment and hiring and putting contra
for your good work. you were very cooperative in saying we could use audio. comcast in d.c. has al-jazeera english. were you born in the u.s.? did you go to college here in washington? are you six-foot eight? [laughter] >> all of the above. i was born in egypt. my parents immigrated to the u.s. when i was 5 years old. went to school right down the street at american university. i started working for nbc news right across the street from american university. i started off as a desk assistant. i was handed out newspapers in the morning and answering phone calls. most of the time i was justin all of the correspondence, but it was a great environment to see how people operate in the high-pressure environment. the summer that i started i was actually going to leave journalism. my parents were like you have a master's degree, this is not what you're born to be working on. i actually stayed through by chance until 9/11 happened and the rules of the game completely changed. there was all this talk about the war in iraq following year. this is what led me to cnn and ultimately to iraq. >> y
anyplace reading the record pretty carefully that you argue to the district court or to us before we got that case anything about the fact you shouldn't be allowed to talk about standing on judgment if he didn't put it in your complaint. >> again and that's an issue where the plaintiffs have the burden of proof. >> just a minute. you're not answering the question. i understand they have the burden of proof, but we now are not on standing itself. we are talking about procedures to get to whether you can challenge standing. and i understand that in order to have a procedure to challenge standing, somebody ought to make it to the poor dj having been in his position once before, and he out to be able to rule on it. or somebody ought to get it before us. we have a new case and it may be great, but if the district judge didn't get a chance to look at it and neither did we before this case comes out, then why should i make that the issue here? that's the question. not whether they have standing or not because they have enough in their declarations for summary judgment to make standing. >> but w
to be an independent arab nationalistic democracy and people say to us what were you thinking? you had this incredible war and you lost all these lives and have these veterans who are suffering. were you thinking? i don't want to answer that question saying well, you know, we decided once the military left we left because i think i would be really great tragedy and unfair to all the sacrifice that this country and particularly our brave young men and women have made. >> thank you madame secretary and madame chair. >> thank you, madam chairman. just one question for a little follow-up on mr. rothman. you are trying to manage a very difficult situation that really nobody anticipated. we have the adversaries who didn't anticipate either but they are trying to exploit it. so from al qaeda and iran, what are they doing in egypt, what are they doing in libya and these other places. >> that's another thing that keeps me of that might come congressman cole. meter elon al qaeda had anything to do with these uprisings. now there are those who are of conspiratorially minded approach is and claim they do but ther
diabetes came at all from the herbicide sprays that they used. guest: you are referring to agent orange. there are studies that have been done at that may have contributed to some forms of diabetes. i did not mention a categories of diabetes that we referred to as others, a catchall category. it can be a contributing factor. more study is necessary, more opportunity to better understand whether that is the case, or indeed, other contributors that veterans have as they grow older, the reason that they have type 2 diabetes. the bottom line, if you have type 2 diabetes, whatever the reason, it is incredibly important to take an active role in taking care of your diabetes. host: dr. ann albright, thank you for talking to us this morning. that does it for today's "wash. journal." the house will be meeting on tuesday. they will take up a continuing resolution to keep the government running. the sixth since october 2010. meanwhile, the president today speaks at kenmore middle school in arlington, virginia. that will be at 10:00 eastern time.

's flektive of my district. i would venture to argue that in terms of traveling by air, we use the same systems. you look on the computer. you're checking who the people are and all of that, but everyone isn't just simply walking through the airport. we have a layer of inspection that occurs at the airport that you have to go through. i want to echo my concerns as the chairman did that i'm just really concerned of where we are and i realize the chatter doesn't raise to the level as you're dealing with aviation. i get all of that. but all we need is one problem and suddenly, things will change. you were quoted as saying you are looking to extend the deadline to july 2014th. do you see implementing this program? >> i'm hopeful that we can persuade the congress that the statute itself is not the best way to secure the global supply chain and that there are better ways and that we are engaged in those. given the existing statute, given the configuration of ports around the world, the expense of some of the equipment associated only by focusing on what happens as the ports as opposed to the
are giving us the outcomes a look at how we make changes. when we look at these budget figures, in some way, we all know this understates the magnitude of the problem. health costs continue to rise and a lot of costs that were born at the federal level, for example pell grants and title 1 money, there is an uncertain future in terms of what the size of those funds will be. if you look at some of the possibilities, the impact on research institutions, on cape test well funded, and the number of people going to higher education, if you add what might happen at the federal level into some of these numbers, you can look at get quite concerned. the history of education is that over the last 20 years, the spending has gone up about double the per people expenditure. during that time, if you take the constant benchmarktakethe naep numbers which showed the same story as s.a.t. scores or international competitions, those have been largely flat. it is a big investment and yet the outcomes have not changed that much. what we are being asked to do for equity and competitiveness is to literally flipper
you being here. you had to fly from france and back to germany. we could have used high- technology, maybe, to get your testimony and take your questions. we could have worked on that. i would also like to point out for the record that this is our second hearing on this topic. we had all the fcc commissioners before. if it is equally divided among the democrats and the republicans. at the conclusion of this hearing, there will have been two hearings. probably one of the first times in history of the committee, the minority has more witnesses on the topic and the majority. we're trying to hear from people. we're trying to be fair and balanced about this. we look for it your testimony when we resume. so i recessed the committee until after the prime minister. it is probably about an hour by the time members go and get back. it may be a little more. we can hang out, but not too far away. with that, the committee stands in recess.

a week from 80,000 unique users. we are very fortunate to have him with us today. please welcome the member of the european parliament, daniel hannan. [applause] >> think you very much for those generous words and the ladies and gentlemen i tell you it isn't something we are accustomed to as members of the year appeal of parliament. [laughter] we are generally not the most popular people. you don't have to contradict when i say that. i got used to it over the years. maybe it has something to do with the fact that none of you can vote for me. [laughter] you won't find a politician in the united kingdom who is a bigger fan of jeffersonian democracy than me but i suspect in your third president occasionally enjoy being able to speak to an audience when nobody could vote for him and he didn't need to worry about what he said. we had an election a couple of months ago, a general election, and there is nothing like people casting their vote to remind an elected representative of the full diversity of wildlife whom he represents in his constituency. you're chairman knows what i'm talkin
is basically an honor system. here is our oil, take us, tell us how much you've taken. if you don't think that's the right way to do business, congress and the administration is treating taxpayers if they have a fiduciary responsibility to manage assets. we do support the markey fix, but we also worked ghostly with mr. chairman issa. i think there's a real potential for a bipartisan solution on this and from the taxpayers do this to the over. >> thank you. >> i think the gentleman. >> for five minutes. >> thank you, mr. chairman. and thank you for the presentations from the entire board. mr. dodaro, i didn't know for sure, but i was listening to the language and i thought he picked up the pittsburgh and i'm glad to see -- is jim dodaro your brother clerics okay, it's the pittsburgh and the boys. listen, thank you for your presentation today. i come to this committee with a background that includes time as united states attorney and in that capacity came in just after september 11 when we were dealing with issues of terrorism. we share responsibilities and other committees as well. one of those
there on those convention floors. there were not so many of us. we had a giant headsets on running around trying to nab people. i believe that with every broadcast ad agency -- at network news as a female anchor. i think that is an achievement and it makes a big difference. i had to do a conference once at the sun valley, idaho in front of corporate moguls and i called jack welch. i asked him what he learned about putting rocket fuel behind women in the workplace. the more women you have in management, the more when you have on the board, you have a direct correlation to the success of the company. there is. that is a business piece of evidence. he said he learned numbers. he said he had learned that it is not about having women. it is about having some number of women and i don't know what it is yet. if you get women in a room including a news room and you have a certain number, maybe more than 1/2, it is a different news room. he said that is what we have to concentrate on, that number, not just having women, but having the number that actually controls the gps of a great organization. >> if y
